Leigh Sports Village
Location: Leigh, England
Training Space: Sports Performance
Leigh Sports Village provides state of the art facilities for sport, physical activity, education, health and leisure that serves the whole community. The brief for IndigoFitness was to create a high-performance training space that will be used by both Leigh Centurions, Manchester United Women’s Team and local high-performance teams and athletes.
The aim of this project was to create a high-performance training space that would work for different sports teams that train out of Leigh Sports Village.
The training space would be used by Leigh Centurions rugby league team, Manchester United Women’s football team and other local high-performance teams and athletes. The IndigoFitness design plan was to maximise floor space and functionality to allow the gym to work effectively for multiple different teams.
With the gym being on the first floor, there was a flooring requirement to reduce the sound and vibrations travelling to neighbouring rooms and offices. 51mm Duratrain flooring is a perfect solution for upper level training spaces where weights will be dropped on the floors. The premium flooring solution was specified to protect the sub-floor and reduce noise to the rest of the building. To ensure a seamless finish to the floor the custom branded 13m long turf track was built up to the same height, as were the custom Graphix platforms.
The hub of this gym is the Shadow Series Rack unit, containing 3 power racks with built in storage for small equipment, additional attachments and each rack linked by bars with ball grip pull up handles for alternative stimulus. Finally, connected to the racks by another storage bay are an integrated Lat Pull/Low Row and a height adjustable cable station. This unit takes up one complete side of the gym and makes a big statement.
On the other side of the custom track which runs down the spine of the gym there is a dumbbell storage rack holding a full set of Raze PU dumbbells, a bi-lateral leg press, and a glute drive and ham glute bench. Cardio equipment was also supplied with a Wattbike, Concept 2, Renegade Airbike, and Concept 2 Ski Erg. All these items are at the periphery of the room and with the seamless nature of the flooring, this provides a large amount of open space for coaches to programme and run different elements of their sessions.
